    prove to me it is easy to determine the rabid nature of a baby squirrel, or you're wasting EVERYONE'S time.
    That makes sense. From now on, I am going to carry pepper spray, and use it on all my neighbors. After all, I can't tell which ones might have AIDS.

    There has never been a case of a human contracting rabies from a squirrel in Texas (or even the US) between 1950 and 2010 ever recorded.

    Something tells me Texan police officers don't get a course on the history of rabies in police academy

    What makes you think this officer was a book worm

    Ok, seriously, who could be afraid of either of these?

    By which you insulted yourself in your own post and I had to do no work. it may be lost on you of course, but not to anyone that's worth this forum's time. Only if one of the squirrels in your picture was rabid and that rabies cannot be discerned by a mere look would you have proven that the difference isnt obvservable and in conclusion youre a smart as a bowling ball. Critical thinking FTW. gratz, youre my first ignore.

    Looks like a typical friendly campus squirrel to me. Most of them will eat right out of your hand. I bet it didn't occur to the cop that the squirrel was approaching because it saw something in his hand that might be food.

    This cop is a moron. Obviously has nothing better to do than try to be some semblance of a "hero" in front of a crowd of girls.

    Oh noes, save us from the baby squirrel!!

    If it helps, this is one of the pics that came up when I googled "rabid baby squirrel":



    It probably doesn’t help…

    The whole thing reminds me of Jimmy Carter and the drowning rabbit.

    I was going to say I am pretty sure some of King Arther's men thought a rabbit was nothing and how did that end up for them? The rabbit bit their heads off. Moral of the story: Don't trust cute animals.
